Tickets to our Summer Tasting event on Sunday 14th of August were released recently and over half have been snapped up already. If you’ve never been to one of our tasting events, and want to know a bit more about them, read this handy FAQ guide below… 
1. “I’m not really that into wine, is this event for me?”
Yes! It’s perfect for people wanting to learn a little bit more about wine or simply get introduced to wines they might enjoy. Where else would you get the chance to try over 100 wines at your own pace? Also if you’re REALLY not into wines, and gin is more your thing, we will also have spirits open to taste.

2. “Do I have to sit and listen to someone drone on about wine?”
Not at all. The format is what we call a ‘walk around tasting’, the room will be laid out with tables with different numbered wines and spirits on them, you will be given a glass on arrival and also a handy tasting booklet listing everything to taste. You’re then free to taste whatever you want.

3. “Do I have to pay for anything on the day?”
No. The ticket to the event is £20 and this covers everything – tasting booklet, all the samples you want to try, canapes, nibbles, music, entertainment, everything. A nice Sunday out for £20, not a bad deal!

4. “Do I have to buy wines on the day?”
No you don’t. We are more than happy having lovely people having a great time tasting wines than anything else. All the wines on taste are available to order and there will be some great deals and offers exclusively available on the day but there is definitely no expectation on you to order or buy.

5. “How long does it go on for?”
The tasting starts at 12pm and runs until 5pm. You don’t have to turn up exactly on time or stay till the end, it’s really flexible and you can go at your own pace. We recommend about 2 hours to try everything you’d like to and suggest you arrive between 12pm and 3pm.
